If you struggle with your weight, you’d probably love a full proof “recipe for weight loss success”, one that would guarantee you’d achieve your goal to lose 10, 20, 50 or 100 pounds. I know I would. Of course, this would be a philosophical “recipe”, not an actual one with foodstuffs you pick up at your local market.

When I ran across such a “recipe” on Lose Two Pounds a Week, I started thinking about what my “recipe” would consist of, based on the trial and error of five years’ work. Here are my ingredients and directions.

Sassy Sexy Shapely Recipe for Lasting Weight Loss

Ingredients

1.  ¼ cup inspiration (you don’t need much if it’s high quality!)
2.  1 cup of customization
3.  2 cups of implementation
4.  1 cup of movement
5.  3 cups of sticktoitiveness
6.  1 ½ cups of celebration

Directions

1. Let ¼ cup inspiration sit a moment before mixing in the 1 ½ cups of customization.

It’s important to really understand why you’re starting this lifestyle change, which is why you need some time to reflect. A reasonable amount of customization is important because you need to find the plan that’s going to work for you. Think about your interests and schedule and what matters to you most. Then research the plans out there and find the one that best fits your life.

2. Add 2 cups of implementation. This is where you apply what you’ve learned from customizing a plan for yourself. Start implementing your unique plan. Clean out your pantry and restock it with healthy foods. Buy a food journal and start tracking what you eat every day. Weigh yourself once a week to chart your progress.

3. Stir in 1 cup of movement. Any movement will do as long as you do it on a regular basis. Generally, 3 days a week is a good guideline.

4. The 3 cups of sticktoitiveness are critical to the success of this recipe. You’re going to need a lot of perseverance to stay on course day-in and day-out. It’s a grind sometimes, and sticktoitiveness is often the only way to get through.

5. Be sure to add in 1 ½ cups of celebration a various intervals. Do something nice for yourself when you achieve a milestone or even when you just hold steady during a difficult period. You’re working hard, and you deserve to celebrate your achievements!
